She didn’t rush her plan but took time so that she knew that the king would favor her over Haman.

Esther 5:1
KJV 1 Now it came to pass on the third day, that Esther put on her royal apparel, and stood in the inner court of the king's house, over against the king's house: and the king sat upon his royal throne in the royal house, over against the gate of the house.

The Scripture Esther 5:1

Esther 4:17
KJV 17 So Mordecai went his way, and did according to all that Esther had commanded him.

Today's New International Version (2005)
Esther 4:17 So Mordecai went away and carried out all of Esther's instructions.

These are my thoughts.
Who instructions are we carrying out? Are we carrying out what God has told us to do or are we more worried about what man wants from us?

It's not true that the Bible must not be interpreted and it's not true that all the passages must be interpreted literally

Among various believers there is the senseless belief that the Bible must not be interpreted. What is the Bible? It is a set of letters-words-phrases that our brain must necessarily process/interpret to give the interpretation that seems to us the most logical. When we read or hear biblical verses that form a given topic, the brain interprets. That particular topic, necessarily has a single correct interpretation. For example, the topic concerning the time of the second coming of Christ, that is, if he will return before or after the end of the great tribulation, has only one correct interpretation. Either he will return before or he will return after the end of the great tribulation. Since this is another matter, I do not want to discuss whether Christ will return before or after the end of the great tribulation. The fact remains that by putting one or more passages of the Bible together, one can get to the truth. Some may mistakenly interpret some biblical passages to come to the wrong conclusion. As we have noted, there may be more interpretations about something. This principle also applies to many other things, not just to the Bible. We can also consider the resolution of a mathematical enigma that has nothing to do with the Bible. If this enigma has only one correct interpretation, all the others are necessarily incorrect. It may happen that some people may misinterpret the various steps that lead to the resolution of this riddle, convinced that that is the right resolution, while it is not. The correct resolution of this enigma is a truth, as is the truth concerning the coming of Christ. Basically there is no difference between these two truths, because they are still two truths. Since I have used the term "fundamentally", I am by no means placing the word of God, that is the Bible, on an equal footing with other truths that have nothing to do with the Bible, but I just want to make it clear that they are still truths, and there is basically no difference.
To come to the conclusion about the truth concerning the return of Christ, the brain had to do operations of some kind, so it has interpreted. Sometimes the brain, for one reason or another, can misinterpret something that causes it to deviate to the point of giving the wrong interpretation.
The error in which many people fall is to affirm this: "it is the Holy Spirit who reveals these things to us and it is not about human reason" (typical reasoning of senseless believer). They do not realize that these two things are connected. It is certainly true that if one arrives at a biblical truth it is because it is God (the Holy Spirit) who revealed that truth to him, but it is also true that that person has made some kind of reasoning, so he/she has made some interpretation. So God made sure that this person, necessarily using the brain, made the right interpretation that brought him/her to this truth. I want to point out the fact that anything is God's will. If anything is God's will, it is also God's will when a person believes something wrong, whether it is something about the Bible or something else.
Let's suppose that an atheist, decides to study the Bible, perhaps because he is asked to do so. Even if he sees the Bible as a book of fables, he can give more correct interpretations regarding biblical arguments than a believer who is in the way of salvation. The difference is that the atheist does not believe what he is studying, while the believer does. The point is that God reveals these things of the Bible almost always or always to his children; and the main reason is that the atheist does not try to study the Bible, precisely because he says he does not believe it. It is possible that almost everyone, if not all those who claim to believe in the Bible but do not read it, it is because they are in the way that leads to destruction. God's will is that some of the truths of the Bible are learned only by a few people. This can happen because many do not believe them and therefore do not want to have anything to do with them, or because even if they believe in them, they are not close to God to the point of having to do with them. All this will not produce levels of interest sufficiently high to the point of having to do with the Bible, etc. By God's will, the result is that for one reason or another, only some, in the course of the history of humanity learn certain truths.

The other false belief widespread among the believers affirms that the Bible must be interpreted literally. There are the passages that must be interpreted literally and those that must be interpreted symbolically. For example, the beast of which Revelation 13:1 speaks has a symbolic meaning. In fact, it is not literally a beast with 10 horns and seven heads that will rise out of the sea. The Bible contains many symbolic passages, especially the book of Revelation.

Esther 4:16
KJV 16 Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.

The Scriptures (ISR 1998)

16“Go, gather all the Yehuḏim who are present in Shushan, and fast for me, and do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I too, and my young women shall fast in the same way, then I shall go to the sovereign, which is against the law. And if I shall perish, I shall perish!”

Fasting is important in following and living out God’s will.
